Research Work

My research topic, as ESR9, includes research and training in the design, development, and operations of cyber-security management platforms and their compliance to EU policies associated with the European Cyber-security directive.
Focus will be on developing cyber security operations centre functions for applications, systems, and data hosted in 3rd party private and/or public cloud environment.
It integrates innovation on threat detection, threat assessment, risk-based decision making, incident remediation planning and response coordination.
My work will also focus on social-technical research in cyber-security, including analysis of trust, reputation and influence in social networks and methods to protect against social engineering attacks.
The main work package I work on is ‘Work Package 3’ (leader: BT) and my main task aims to defines a reference model for cyber-security management of Enterprise and Telecom systems and an associated cyber-defence managed service that utilizes innovations from emerging technologies in network and IT system security monitoring and enforcement, security information collection, security risk analysis, mitigation planning, counter-measure impact analysis, response coordination and enforcement.
Demonstration of tools and methods to improve multi-stage attack, detection, analysis, remediation impact assessment.
